Middle Rogue Metropolitan Planning Organization

Policy Committee

The Middle Rogue MPO Policy Committee (PC) meets on the third Thursday of each month, unless canceled for lack of agenda items. Meetings normally begin at 2:30 p.m. and are currently held at the Courtyard Conference Room at Grants Pass City Hall, 101 NW 'A' Street in Grants Pass, Oregon. Current transportation issues are discussed and status reports on transportation studies and projects are given. After discussions are completed, policy actions are taken that include adoption of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), revisions to the documents or the Middle Rogue Regional Transportation Plan (MR RTP), and adoption of resolutions related to current transportation issues.

The Policy Committee makes difficult decisions in a cooperative manner. However, the Policy Committee's responsibilities do not begin and end with making decisions. Policy members are responsible to the residents of the region for the quality of transportation services and for the impact of transportation on their overall quality of life. Policy Committee members share the responsibility for making sure that the major transportation issues of today and tomorrow are dealt with fairly and properly.
